Dear Health Nurse,
I went for the above test but in error urinated approximately 30 minutes before test time. How accurate do think the results may be and do you think a retest is required?
I had gonorrhea type symptoms, irritation that turned to painful urination and a mild discharge from the penis. The pain experienced during urination was limited to the urinary tract of the penis and progressively got more painful. This has about two weeks after a few BBBJ"s from multiple SP's. symptoms identified mid week and I was at the Drs office by Friday.
On Friday I had completed both a swab sample and a urine test. I had urinated about an hour before my exam had completed the lab work immediately after the medical examination. It was told that the urine tests are VERY accurate.
I got my results today - after continued symptoms over the weekend. THE RESULTS WERE NEGATIVE for both Gonorrhea and Chlamydia.
My doctor still treated me for the symptoms with 10 days of DOXYCYYCLINE . he explained that these were unexplained urinary tract infections - the symptoms of which were exactly those of the STI/STD. im hoping that the antibiotics will do the trick.
In cases that are "undefined" or not determined as an STI/STD .. are there risks of passing this on to others?
I am single and am at no risk of sharing this with anyone. I wouldn't wish it on anyone - this is from BBBJ. I have not had vaginal intercourse in a long time so I can limit my potential exposures.
If its not an STD .. than what is it?
